Two colour screen print on metallic copper paper

Availability: 3 in stock

An eye-catching two colour screen print on copper metalllic paper of a swan swimming at Walthamstow Wetlands, with the dramatic silhouette of blocks of flats behind it, giving it a dynamic composition.

The colour palette of copper, blue and light grey is inspired by the colours produced by un-fixed cyanotypes. Once the cyanotype is exposed in u.v. light, the moments before it is fixed in water it creates beautiful tones of copper and blue, but these fade quickly or change to blue and white once they are permanenlty fixed in water. Creating these screen prints gave me the opportunity to keep the colours permanent.

These handprinted screen prints are printed in a very small  edition of 4 each.
